Peruvian president’s attendance to Summit still pending

Lima, May 20 (Prensa Latina) The Peruvian government has yet to announce its level of representation at the Summit of the Americas, after confirming it will attend it and taking a stance against the exclusions.

A foreign ministry message reveals that the country will be represented at the summit, which will take place in Los Angeles, from June 8 to 10, but without specifying if President Pedro Castillo will participate.

It adds that, in this vein, it has revealed its aspiration that all countries from this region should participate in order to make possible an open and inclusive dialogue to overcome differences.

Peru thus joined the countries that disagree with Washington’s unilateral decision of excluding Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua from this summit, countries towards which it maintains an attitude of political and economic hostility.

Local commentators such as professor of international affairs Ramiro Escobar said the exclusion of these nations from the summit makes no sense.

Cuban Ambassador to Peru, Carlos Rafael Zamora, said Thursday at a ceremony to honor Cuban National Hero Jose Marti, that the region’s general condemnation of US exclusions is an example of his pro-Latin American legacy.

Besides widespread critics of the exclusion of these countries, the presidents of Bolivia, Mexico and Honduras have announced that they will not attend the summit in Los Angeles if that discrimination persists.
